anxiety attack??

I recently suffered the following symptoms 
off balance
extreme joint pain
numbess in lower extremeties

my GP said i was having an anxiety attack and RX' d Aterax and Akineton.

I went back every day in a week still not feeling any better at all. I stopped all meds given and went sort of back to normal. Does this sound like an enxiety attack, i am not really prone to stress and have relatively normal stressors in my life.

I have never in my life felt so bad and thought i was dying i felt so bad.

Is this normal for such an attack and could something have triggered this??
